In medieval England, 1 January rather than Christmas was the day to exchange gifts; the summer solstice on 24 June had been transformed from pagan festival to the feast of St John the Baptist; while the end of the year was the anniversary of the murder of Thomas Becket on 29 December 1170. Day by day, this engrossing book uses excerpts from a great diversity of writings to build up a picture of what life was like, and record historic events, in medieval England.
